It won't be long before Marvel Studios introduces the first family to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and while we still know very little about the much-awaited Fantastic Four reboot's key details (especially its cast), that didn't stop fans from voicing out their opinions regarding which actors should be part of the film. In fact, a lot of people have been unanimous with their picks as to who should play Mr. Fantastic and Invisible Woman in live-action form.


Now, Marvel fans may have every reason in the world to rejoice following this new development. According to an exclusive report from the good folks over at Small Screen UK, A Quiet Place stars John Krasinski and Emily Blunt are currently in talks with Marvel Studios to star in the project. Nothing has officially been confirmed yet so take this one with a huge grain of salt but it's worth noting that Krasinski was previously reported to have met "secretly" with Kevin Feige for potential involvement in the billion-dollar franchise.

Of course, if this exciting rumor ends up to be true, it'll be a monumental win for fans of the franchise who have been campaigning for years to have Krasinski and Blunt portray Reed Richards and Sue Storm respectively. It'll also be a huge score for the husband-and-wife tandem who have long been eyed for various MCU roles which they ultimately lost. Could now be the perfect time for them to join the Marvel Universe?

The Fantastic Four are rumored to make their MCU debut via Ant-Man 3.
